    I picked it up for $7 and not sure what power output it has. Has anyone got a clue about this amp? I am hoping it will work great for a DIY subwoofer, two 15 to be exact.

    Thanks!

    This power amp was made in Taiwan (most NADs now made in Peijing China) when NAD was still run by its importers (eg me) and the 40 in the model number was the nominal RMS/Sinus continuous power output.

    The design was damn good and should work VERY nicely for you in your proposed use.

    So this is 40w RMS x2? And it also states its bridgable so I'm guessing it could put out around 200ish watts mono 4ohm?

    Thanks

    Yeah - it was a very conservative 40W - like all the NAD's that were made then. (Please don't use the number system to tell you anything anymore - since the 'China' move - it can be all over the map, I've understood)

    Those older NAD's are great. Lots of headroom. Always consevatively rated. I have a NAD 3020 int. amp i bought in 1980 that i will never sell.
